"Now the noisy winds are still; 

April's coming up the hill! 
All the Spring is in her train. 
Led by shining ranks of rain; 

Pit, pat, patter, clatter, 
Sudden sun and clatter, patter! 
First the blue and then the shower; 
Bursting bud, and smiling flower; 
Brooks set free with tinkling ring; 
Birds too full of song to sing; 
Crisp old leaves astir with pride, 
Where the timid Violets hide, — 
All things ready with a will, — 

April's coming up the hill!"

The term, April Fool's Day, was given to the first 
day of April in allusion to the custom of playing practical 
jokes or sending people on fool's errands on that day. 

The origin of this custom is much disputed. One of 
the alleged origins arose from the farcical commemoration 
of Christbeing sent from Annas to Caiaphas,from Caiaphas 
to Pilate, from Pilate to Herod, and from Herod back to 
Pilate, the crucifixion taking place about the first of April. 

It seems certain, though, that formerly universal festi- 
vities were held at the vernal equinox, beginning about 
the twenty-fifth of March and ending with the first day of 
April. The chief amusement of the people was in fooling 
their friends. It is interesting to find that the Hindoos 
have a similar festival which terminates the last day of 

It has been plausibly suggested that Europe got the 
day from the French. France was the first nation to 
adopt the reformed calendar. Charles IX decreed that 
all festivities usually accompanying April first should be 
transferred to January first. Those who disliked the 
change made mock gifts and paid calls of pretended cere- 
mony on April first. 

Various countries apply different names to April Fool's 
Day. In Scotland they have the custom of "hunting the 
gowk," and April fools are known as April gowks. The 
word "gowk" means cuckoo — a term of contempt. In 
France the April fool is known as "poisson d' avril."

The first of April will soon be here, and let us remem- 
ber that throughout the world that day is set aside as the 
practical jokers' own day. 

Edna Robb, '16. 


It was late in the evening on one of those smouldering 
August days. Little Johnie could not sleep. He sat up 
in bed and looked anxiously out into the calm, silent night. 
The full moon was beautiful, casting long, weird shadows 
on the lawn. Close by the hedge, lay motionless, the 
garden hose. It looked almost snake-like lying there. 
Johnie could not help thinking of the fairy stories his sis- 
ter had told him when she put him to bed. He was won- 
dering now if there really were fairies. Just then he 
thought he saw a beautiful one, gliding softly across the 
lawn to where the hose lay. She was beautifully gowned, 
in misty white, which flowed about her in the old Grecian 
way. Her hair was light and shone like gold in the moon- 
light. By this time Johnie was out of bed and by the win- 
dow. He always wanted to see fairies and now he scarcely 
realized what was before him. He gazed more and more 
intently and was almost sure he saw her lift the hose and 
begin sprinkling the lawn and flower beds. First he saw 
her by the roses, she seemed to be talking with them, and 
a minute later was drowning the very ones, until they 
nodded their heads with sufficiency. She did this to other 
parts of the garden and finally when her task was com- 
pleted, she vanished as she came, into space. Little 
Johnie sat dazed. He realized the atmosphere had be- 
come much cooler. Was it because of the fairy or the 
water? Surely he was not dreaming. He was wide 
awake and sitting by the window. He waited for the fairy 
to reappear but she did not. Looking longingly out of 
the window upon the garden, little Johnie turned to his 
bed. He would be sure in the morning if the fairy were 

Page Four 

Wfje College Greeting* 

really there or not. The grass and bushes would prove 
it to him. With this thought he went to sleep. On 
awakening he looked once more out of the window and 
anxiously called his mother to dress him. Then running 
across the lawn and seeing the bushes he discovered them 
to be really damp. He wasn't a bit surprised. For 
hadn't he seen a really, truly, fairy the night before? 

Flora Mueller, '20. 


Whether or not we have been conscious of their com- 
ing, the birds are again making their presence known 
about us. The shortest walk cannot be taken without 
seeing a robin bobbing his saucy head as he runs along 
before us, a little brown creeper going up a tree, or a tiny 
nuthatch slipping down. The blackbirds fill the trees 
with their twitter, the kinglets and juncoes flit along the 
hedges. The song of the lark comes uncertainly from 
the fields, the flying bluebird catches the rays of the sun- 

The winter residents are aroused by the home com- 
ing. Noisily they cry their welcome. The crows, the 
bluejays, make much more commotion than when they 
were among the majority of our feathered friends. Even 
the dusty little sparrows frisk about more gayly, less ready 
to accept the proffered feast of crumbs on the window- 
ledge. The cardinal in his shining plumage calls out his 
thankfulness for the return of spring from the tipmost top 
of trees. The steady honk, honk of the wild geese pro- 
claims it spring indeed.

The May Greetings is to be "class" number. Con- 
tributions of some kind are solicited from every class. 
Poems, editorials, stories, news items will be accepted. 
No prizes are offered but the best contribution will receive 
recognition. Class presidents, this is a matter for you to 
look after. See that your class is represented by the con- 
tribution of some member. 

The Greetings staff is very sorry to receive the resig- 
nation of Helen McGhee, whose election to the Y. W. C. 
A. cabinet gives her more points than is permitted her to 
carry according to the regulations of the evaluating com- 
mittee's decision. 

The paper on the Winged Victory in last Greetings 
was written by Ruth Harper, M7. 


Our Arrius used to say happropriate 

Whenever he wanted just appropriate, 

And hambush for ambush quite pleased him, no doubt, 

Especially when it had come with a shout. 

His mother, his uncle, the free one, I mean, 

His grandpa, his grandma, this same way did lean. 

Then Syria promised a rest to our ears 

For he had been sent there to stay a few years. 

Our ears heard the same words, but softly and low, 

Page Six 

®fje College (greeting* 

With never a fear that they'd hear them just so, 
When sudden the horrible news came back 
That Arrius saw what he thought was a lack 
And waves which rejoiced in the Ionian name 
Had yielded it up to Hionian fame. 

Louise Harries, '15. 


"Neither a borrower nor a lender be, 
For loan oft loses both itself and friend, 
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry/' 

— Shakespere. 

"We're going to have a spread to-night," announced 
Edith, as she rushed info the room, and deposited a pile 
of books upon her already crowded desk. Her room- 
mate did not look up from her studying, but asked ab- 
sently, "Oh, are we? And are we going to have some- 
thing to eat? " 

"Of course we'll have eats," declared Edith. "Madge, 
you're always so practical. What's the use of worrying 
when entertaining is such a very simple matter. You 
know I got a cake from home this morning, and — why, 
there are just lots of things we can have. I planned it 
all out in class when I should have been listening to that 
lecture. I happened to see some of the girls after class, 
so invited them then." 

"And how many did you invite, if you please," in- 
quired Madge. 

"Let me see, with us I believe there are ten alto- 

"My goodness, Edith, you don't mean to say you've 
invited ten people to eat one small cake!" 

"Oh, but I expect to have lots more. We'll make 
fudge and tea and — " 

"Do you realize that our supply of silver and china 

Page Seven 

Cfje College fretting* 

has been diminished by our friends who borrow and fail 
to return them, until now we have exactly three saucers 
and two spoons? " 

'That's a small matter. I can borrow in return and 
I'll try to borrow from the same ones who have come to 
us before, and then I can forget to return them. Til 
start in now," and Edith hurried out of the room. 

Presently she returned, her arms full of her spoils. 
Setting the dishes down on the table, she said. "Out of 
the ten plates 1 borrowed, four happened to be ours. I 
don't believe the girls realized it, either. Everybody had 
cups and spoons they'd give me, so you see it was an easy 

"Remember that your chafing-dish burner is broken, 
and that our last clean lunchcloth had fudge spilled on it 
the other night," reminded Madge. 

'Til borrow Mary's chafing dish, it's better looking 
than mine, anyway, and of course she'll let me have a 
lunch cloth." 

"You'd better see if there is any alcohol left in the 
bottle," persisted Madge. 

"Not a drop," cheerfully answered Edith scrutinizing 
the empty bottle. "But Betty got some yesterday when 
I was with her, so I know I can get it from her." 

Alice Tombaugh, '17. 



(A moving picture plot). 
Grace sitting in her room conceives a grand idea for 
a stunt that has to be given that evening. The sun 
streams through the windows; her clock on the "mantle" 
points to ten minutes of nine. She rushes to Beulah's 
room with her scheme, but finding no one there slips a 
note under the door. Her face shows that she is not sur- 
prised to find the room empty as she starts for a room 
down the corridor. On the way she meets a Freshman 

Page Eight 

Hfyt College Greeting* 

and asks if she has seen Beulah. She receives as an 
answer a reverent and polite, "No ma'am." As she 
reaches the door she knocks vigorously and enters the 
room in almost the same instant. Here she is told that 
Beulah has been there, but has just gone to the library. 
Her face lights up with hope. She is urged to stay, but 
no, she must find Beulah while she can locate her. As 
Grace is seen coming down the stairs Beulah disappears 
around the corner. 

Beulah's errand takes her to the botany laboratory 
and then directly to her room where she finds the note. 
She follows much the same course to find Grace that 
Grace did to find her. At each place she is told that 
Grace is looking for her and where she was last seen. In 
the front hall the Freshman rushes up to her with that 
happy radiance which comes only when a Freshman can 
do an upper classman a favor, shining all over her face, 
exclaiming, "Grace is looking all over for you, I saw her 
just a second ago in the Greetings off ice.' ' With a 
dawning look of hope Beulah starts for the Greetings 
office. The disappearing elevator lifts her long sought 
friend out of sight just as she comes to the official win- 

Grace leaves the elevator on her home floor, goes to 
her room, and throws herself on the bed exhausted. A 
few minutes later the Freshman finds her here. Her 
message this time is that she has seen Beulah in the front 
hall. Grace hurries down the stairs not wiling to wait 
for the elevator which as it happens carries Beulah up as 
Grace goes down. The chase is on again in full force 
when the chapel bell rings. Among the ten o'clock 
crowd in the front hall the two girls spy each other. They 
rush into one another's arms, the light of success after a 
long struggle on their faces. 

Helena Munson, '15.

It was nine-seventeen ! A most tragic hour for such 
an occurrence with lessons to get or to finish, party dresses 
to be folded away and hair to be put up for the night, 
but, how did we know that it would happen, or how were 
we to blame? "Roomie" was positively famished and 
I was only going to make her some toast. The first piece 
was splendid, just brown and crisp enough to whet my 
appetite and to cause the whole sad incident. 

"Funny this bread doesn't brown," I exclaimed after 
a few minutes. 

"Maybe you turned the current off," suggested my 
roommate." Turn it on again and see." I turned, but still 
the toaster did not redden; I pulled out the toaster and 
connected it again; I turned the switch and was just trying 
to make the connection over again, which my roommate 
called, "Come in!" 

Come in! and they came. There was the girl with 
a mouth full of hair pins and kid curlers, the girl with a 
besmeared letter, the girl with a Latin book, the girl 

with pan and spoon, and even Miss in her exclusive 

red kimona. All came in, took one look and then let 

"I simply can't finish this letter! I can't make this 
cocoa. I can't finish up my hair," and even the one in 
the red kimona exclaimed in disgust "Girls, are you using 
a toaster? " 

Then from over the transom came such cries of dis- 
tress, calls for candles, threats and ejaculations against 
us, that we, rather than venture out, valiantly quenched 
our thirst and went quietly to bed. 

Lucille McCloud, '16. 


"We simply must wash those dishes" you say to your 
room mate on Monday morning as you view the remains

of Saturday night's frivolity, yes and probably Sunday 
night's too. "Why we haven't a clean dish to our 

"What's the use?" is her indifferent reply "Let's 
leave them until later." Ordinarily you would feel the 
same way about it but today you have the desire to be 

"No," you say sternly, "If we leave them now we 
never will do them," and laden with dishes you start to- 
ward the sink, followed by "Roomy," who peacefully 
swings the towel. 

Once there you proceed to drench yourself as well as 
the dishes. Perhaps you break two or three but that is no 
occasion for sadness; — just that much less to wash next 

Phyllis Wilkinson, '17. 


At I. W. C. when the day's work's o'er 

For the home girls there is a treat in store 

They feel that they can have some fun 

When that glad 4:15 has come 

They mingle their voices in happy tone 

But the town girl rejoices that she can go home 

She unearths her wraps from the hall tree stack 

And joyfully takes the homeward track. 

The town girl of course is a very good cook 
And never has time to sit down with her book 
Till after she's fussed around making pies 
Doughnuts and cakes and things good to your eyes 
Then when she has finished up all the chores 
Her lofty ambition through psych and math soars 
And it's thus that these plodders of the soil 
Burn many gallons of midnight oil.

®fje College Greeting* 

At last they seek their weary beds 
To rest the things they call their heads. 
The sober senior, worn with care, 
The jaded juniors, with wits threadbare, 
The saucy sophomores, work all done, 
The frisky freshmen scarce begun, 
Each giving way may clear her brow 
And find some ray of comfort now. 

Next morn, at early dawn shell rise 
Before the stars have left the skies. 
The fires are out, the house is cold, 
Her story sad has oft been told. 
She eats her breakfast from the shelf, 
(For of course she must "sustain" herself), 
While though they wouldn't the fact disclose 
The family continues their calm repose. 

She runs to catch the fleeting car 
And falls on the ice with a frightful jar. 
She hits the pavement with her head 
, Coming down kerflop like a load of lead. 
Her hat into the gutter falls, 
As after the car she "sweetly" calls. 
"Hey! stop your car for I have to make 
The Woman's College by five of eight." 

She reaches school in a sorry plight, 

To say the least she is quite a sight. 

Her classmates say, with a shake of the pate, 

"O! that's the girl that's always late." 

Of her French and English she knows none, 

She flunks in her classes one by one, 

While her heartless friends go stalking on 

As calm and tranquil as the dawn. 

O ! college girls, in the boarding school, 
Who eat and sleep and breathe by rule, 
Who grind out lessons by the ton, 

Page Twelve 

$%e College <fi5reetmg* 

And shine forth, brilliant as the sun, 
Then roll in flowery beds of ease 
With your feelings towering to the trees, 
Try town girls' life for about a day, 
Then see if you're much better'n they. 

Rose Ransom, '16. 


Only one who has had the experience can fully com- 
prehend the depth of meaning in that phrase. And who 
has had such excellent experience as a girl in college? 
The bell, that ever present, faithful reminder, begins its 
work fifteen minutes before breakfast, when it rudely 
interrupts a pleasant dream, and you awake demanding 
of your roommate whether that is the rising bell or break- 
fast bell. In either case there would- be time for another 
nap. That rising bell is cruelly early and the breakfast 
bell, of course, is too late. But upon being informed 
that it is fifteen minutes of seven, there is nothing to do 
but make a wild dash to get down for breakfast. 

Thus the day is started. Several minutes are allowed 
before eight o'clock to prepare for room inspection — un- 
less your room happened to have been inspected yesterday 
— and to finish the math you didn't get last night. Three 
classes and an hour of gym for variety fill up the morning, 
allowing five minutes just before lunch to "put in" that 
offensive middy. Perhaps you have a free afternoon — 
free as far as recitations go — but it fairly flies if you take 
a walk, write a letter or two and study a little on the side. 

The dinner bell and bells for study hours follow. 
Then comes "light out," all too soon, it is true, yet most 
welcome to weary brains. How true is the verse, "A 
slave to the bell, a vassal to the hour." 

Elaine Buhrman, 17.

(Sung by Faculty, February 18.) 

We once were corridor teachers and on corridor duty bent, 
If you wanted to borrow a pencil or knife, to us for per- 
mission you went. 
We sat with doors wide open and the hallway in full sight, 
We mounted guard at nine-seventeen, and we helped you 
turn out your light ! 
Here's to the corridor teacher and corridor duty, tra-la! 
Study hours and quiet hours, tra-la-la-etc. 
Since Student Government's come along the teacher's 

closed her door, 
She'll not sit up till ten o'clock to gaze your transom o'er! 
She'll study hard for her next degree and early to bed 

she'll go, 
For the proctor is keeping the corridor, and the Faculty's 
glad it's so ! 

Hurrah for Student Government, tra-la-la-etc. 
Here's to the Board of Proctors! tra-la-la-etc. 

(To Solomon Levi) 
A Sophomore — "Oh yes! The Faculty will study hard 
and they'll assign harder lessons and we'll have a harder 
time than ever!" 


Memories of the old days crowd forward — days when 
we were "new girls." How well I remember that 31st 
day of August, 1 866, when my dear father took me to the 
old "I. F. C." and when he said the last goodbye to his 
one little girl and left me, a lorn small figure crouching 
on the lowest step of the great stairway leading up from 
the spacious hall. 

The last year of Dr. Chas. Adams in our college was 
my first year. Even yet I seem to see his intellectual 
face kindly beaming on his "little girls." Of mornings 

Page Fourteen 

QDfje College Greeting* 

he would call off the letters in chapel, and each one for- 
turate enough to get a letter would go forward and claim 
it. How soon we learned to know the kindly ways. 
We learned too from the naughty wily "old" girls that it 
phased him as an author when we sought to draw the 
bcok from the library that he had written telling him of 
oir desire to read it at once. We learned too that a cer- 
tan steely gleam of his eyes through his big glasses could 
caise a chilly little tremble. The stately teachers awed us 
1y their dignity and store of learning. 

How soon we learned from the "old girls" that when 
ill else had failed and the air seemed full of restraint, we 
;ould flee to dear gentle Mrs. Adams for permissions of 
ilmost any nature. How beautiful she looked to us! 
3ut all too soon those above us found out her amiable 
weakness and we were sternly forbidden to ask any favors 
of her. This we felt to be a grief to her and to us. 
Well I remember how one evening several cronies from 
Jersey Co. found it impossible to "do" our mathematics 
without mutual aid in the evening study hour. We all 

roomed on the third floor and Hattie C , Julia S , 

and Jennie S roomed in one big room. My cousin 

Emma D and self (Eunice W ) roomed nearby 

on the same hall. Hattie C , always a leading spirit 

in adventure, prevailed with Mrs. Adams and gained per- 
mission that we spend the night in her room in the interest 
of deepest research. After an evening of some study and 
more refreshment, we arranged several mattresses in a 
row on the floor. Hattie kept a good fire and after re- 
plenishing it very early in the morning, fell asleep. Later 
she found that it was doing even too well for she was 
awakened by the burning bedding as a coal from the 
big sheet iron stove had fallen out and ignited one of our 
beds. Then ensued a fierce but silent fire fight in the 
smothering smoke. Finally five spent and subdued girls 
hardly able to giggle clumped together and whispered joy 
that their peril was over. Two wary ones crept back to 

Page Fifteen 

Wfyt College #mtmg* 

their own cold bed, while the others with busy lipids 
cleared away all evidence of our fiery ordeal. Whenthe 
little teacher, Miss Harmon, of our hall who always 
seemed like one of the girls, marched in after "inspection 
bell" all seemed in the usual placid order. However 
later in the morning some one "smelt smoke," but we 
never told a creature. As the old college buildings h; ve 
burned twice since then, and their ashes now no doubt en- 
rich the campus, this late telling can harm none of he 
"old girls." 

At the end of the college year of 1866-1867 our well 
beloved Dr. Adams retired, and was succeeded by Vet 
scholarly and amiable Dr. DeMotte, who brought to tli 
college a delightful family and also a following of nej 
pupils, who were lovely and desirable girls from Indiana 
It interested us greatly to see Dr. DeMotte use the sigi 
language, then new to us, in directing his children. H 
could by a slight sign command their attention or obedi 
ence in such an easy quiet way. This was really char- 
acteristic of the man, ever kind and even tempered but 
forceful and thoughtful. He with many others, both in- 
structors and companions in school, are no longer with us 
save in precious memory. 

Mrs. E. J. B. Harris, 1869. 



We used to go to chapel 

Every Wednesday night 
But now instead we're gathered here 

To sing with all our might.

Well all be here in line.

I wish I were a Senior 

A cap and gown to wear 
Go parading down the corridor 

With a proud and haughty air. 

My you're smart, my you're wise 

Don't see how you stand the strain 
With privileges rare which others don't share 

It must be hard on your brain. 


I wish I were a Junior 

I sure do think they're fine 
Just watch them on the 16th of March 

The Seniors they'll outshine. 
Juniors dear, Juniors dear 

In your footsteps we will follow 
We'll stand by you through thick and thin 

In the essay contest beat 'em all hollow. 


I wish I were a Sophomore, 

No studying for them they say. 
To sit around and just look wise, 

That's all they do the live-long day. 
Yes 'tis true- — yes 'tis true 

They don't have to work they say, 
When we were Freshmen, well, I guess we didn't 

— sit around all day. 

I wish I were a College Spesh 

Taking nothing but music and art, 

They work so hard the live-long day 

But at night they go out on a lark.

College Spesh— College Spesh, 

What do you have to do ? 
You can play and sing most anything 

And daub in the studio too. 
But I'd rather be a Freshman 

They're the finest lot of all, 
They are actively engaged in things 

From Math to Basket Ball. 
Sure we are — sure we are, 

Don't you wish you could be too? 
It doesn't take dignity but just common sense 

To sit on the Freshman bench.

Sunday was the installation service, when the former 
president took the pledges of the new officers and com- 
mittee chairmen whose names are given below.

Phi Nu joyfully accepted Daisy Coons' invitation 
to make her home the stopping place on our last bob 
ride. In spite of the fact that the old girls had assured us 
that the rides out there before had been more fun than 
anything, the realization far exceeded our expectations. 
Miss Anderson went with us and after riding over mud 
and tipping through snowdrifts we finally reached the 
house. Mrs. Coons served a delicious supper and all too 
soon we had to start on our ride homeward. 

The new members of Phi Nu are Elaine Buhrman, 
Dora McKee, Gertrude Haines and Gladys Jones. 

The second number of the Phi Nu Bulletin was issued 
this month and sent to all our old members. Though as 
yet is is only a modest sheet Ave are finding it an effective 
organ of the "thread of blue which binds us." 

Our society programs have been made out for the rest 
of this year. The programs are based on sociology and 
social service. 

Feril Hess went to St. Louis for a week-end as Miss 
Ruth Crawford's guest, to see the working of some of the 
organizations which carry on the work of social service. 


During the snowy weather of the past month, Lamb- 
da Mu took a jolly bob ride, followed by an oyster stew at 
Miss Rose Ranson's on Mound Avenue. 

The society has taken. up the study of women's work 
with an eye to vocational occupations for the women of

On Monday night, February twenty-third the fourth 
prep class presented "Mr. Bob" by Rachel E. Baker, in 
Music Hall. Owing to the heavy snow fall there was not 
as large an audience as might otherwise have been ex- 
pected, but all present seemed to enjoy the ludicrous situa- 
tions in which Mr. Brown was placed and the comedy of 
Patty and Jenkins. 


The Blackburnian is an enthusiastic paper, but there is 
too great an abundance of slangy expressions to give it 
rank as a literary product.

poorly constructed. If it were meant to be humorous it 
missed the mark. 

The departments are well represented in the Pegasus 
and are of good character. 

The Augustana has a forceful article on the removal 
of the saloon, a splendid report of the Kansas City con- 
vention, and an interesting well told story that go to make 
it a paper worth while. 

'The worst thing about wasting time is that it does not 
aways belong to us." — Ex. 

The Rockford Ralla contained a good poem and sev- 
eral interesting stories. These made up the bulk of the 
paper so that a decided lack was felt in the department 
reports which are a vital part of a true college paper. 

We recognize that a paper should not be overbur- 
dened with locals and jokes, but well chosen ones give 
spice to a number that is decidedly literary. St. Mary's 
Chimes could be improved by such an addition.

"Have you ever stopped to think when a conversation 
bored you that perhaps the fault lay in your listening as 
well as the other person's talking? Do you not imagine 
that sometimes when you went home from church and said 
that the sermon was uninteresting, the minister might also 
have gone home and told his family that his audience was 
unappreciative and listless." — Western Oxford.
